Cart #35889 | 2017-01-17 | Code ▽ | Embed ▽ | No License

First cart good enough to show around!
Arrow keys to walk around, x to launch your thalassodromeus into the air, then x to flap! Don't touch water!
Not much to show yet, but you can takeoff, land, crash and reach the end. I'm a total newbie at coding so I've had to totally re-write the code a couple times.

does anyone know how I can make it so that holding down BTN x button doesn't send you up continuously? I've tried btnp and messing with timers but can't seem to get it right (which is frustrating because I actually had it working in a prev. version but forgot how I did it).

Hey,

I started as a complete newbie myself, so I know what you are going through. However you have one better on me, because you actually shared a cart here already ;)

Anyway...

You can use the extended button handler function from here to solve your problem. Use either is_pressed() or is_released() with the button you are using to "flap" after including this function in your code. That should solve it.

Thanks! I eventually remembered how I did it in the first place, with a "flap" state that turns off after 10 ticks


if playerstate==4 then

        py+=1
        px+=1

        if btnp(4) then
            sfx(0)

            t=0
        end

        if btn(4) and flap==true then
            pspbody=20
            pspwing=36
            t+=1
            if t>10 then
                flap=false
            end
        end
            psphead=18
            psphead2=19
        if not btn(4) then
            pspbody=17
            pspwing=33

                flap=true

     end
        if btn(4) and flap==true then
            py-=6

    end
    if px>goal then px+=0
    py+=6
    end

end

end

Thanks for sharing! I really like the look and feel of that initial jump launch.
